I apologize in advance for another "what's it worth" thread but I'm stuck. Background: My wife came home and told me last week that a client of hers has some old trucks out behind his shop. They were talking about them and he said that he's not trying to sell them but if I like one I can make an offer. I told her that I don't need another truck and I don't need another project (especially with the impending furlough) but I'll go look. I also said that the only thing he might have that would interest me would be a complete 58/59 Chevy Apache (all time favorite truck). What are the odds that of all the trucks ever built that he'd have one, right? Wrong! He's got three 58/59 Chevys, a 56 and one from that time frame with the front disassembled. He's also got a pile of fenders and hoods for these trucks. All he has is the one truck that I said I couldn't pass up. From what I could see, there might be enough to put together two or three complete trucks. The guy is in his 70s. Its clear that he has an affinity for this style of truck and he collected them for a reason. My wife says he'll never get around to getting any of them on the road because he doesn't have time. I don't want to insult him by low balling him (he's one of the few reasons my wife stays in business) so I'm stuck on what to offer him. Is it wrong to say: "Let me spend a day picking parts to make one good one and I'll give you X amount."? What's the going rate for one of these in non-running, rusted up condition. Is there anything (good or bad) that I should keep a look out for when I'm trying to chose one? Is there enough support for these trucks to make a parts hunt easy once I've hauled it away?
